My Pre-Semester Checklist for College

I can't believe winter vacation (寒假-han jia in Chinese) is over and this Monday I'm going back to college. Like last semester, this one will be entirely online. I'm taking six classes, including a lab (which I have no idea how they'll do online), and this might be the first semester I'm genuinely not looking … Continue reading My Pre-Semester Checklist for College

My Semester is Over! +thoughts on school during the era of Covid

This past week was finals week at my college, which means I'm finally free from school! For month, at least, until I go back to torture myself...I mean, to learn more. But let's not think about that as I celebrate another successful semester! I wanted to do just a relaxing post discussing my experiences and … Continue reading My Semester is Over! +thoughts on school during the era of Covid

August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

I'm really happy with my reading for August 2020. I ended up reading 19 books, which is great, but considering at the end of the month I started college and I have a feeling that my amount of book reading will drop down drastically for this coming month. I read a wide variety of books … Continue reading August 2020 Reading Wrap-up

Books for My College Classes Fall 2020

As school restarts for me this month online, I always look forward to the books I'm assigned to read. Since most of my classes this semester are historical, I have a lot of amazing looking historical nonfiction books to read. One of my classes, Survey to Communication Research, does not require any books, but for … Continue reading Books for My College Classes Fall 2020

The Classes I’m Taking in College: Fall, 2020

In exactly 9 days, Fall semester at my college will be starting. College for me has absolutely been a roller coaster this year, courtesy of our good friend "virus who shall not be named." I started spring semester with seven classes, including a heavy science and lab course which I was not looking forward to. … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Fall, 2020

College In-Person vs. Online

It has been over a month now since my college classes have been moved entirely online. While I have taken online classes before, I have never taken all my classes in one semester online. Instead, usually I'll take like four in-person and one or two online. But since we've all been thrown into this situation … Continue reading College In-Person vs. Online

Coronavirus and College

I was going to come out with a book review today, but with all the madness of the last week, I wanted to give you a brief update on me concerning the COVID-19 virus, commonly called the Coronavirus. As of Tuesday evening, my college in Ohio sent out an email that all in-person classes will … Continue reading Coronavirus and College

The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020

Just like last semester, I thought I would share with you the classes I'm taking spring semester in college. Even though I am a history major, they don't offer one class next semester I need to take before I can take any other history course. This seriously sucks, and means I'm taking mostly science/math courses … Continue reading The Classes I’m Taking in College: Spring, 2020

Upcoming Finals, College Update, and Explanations

It is the week of Thanksgiving, which means I have most of the week off from school, giving me a chance to catch up with a lot of homework, as well as study for finals coming up in a couple weeks. I also have to worry about actually celebrating Thanksgiving and trying to catch up … Continue reading Upcoming Finals, College Update, and Explanations

Midterms and Sanity: College/Life Updates

So, I am currently about halfway into my first semester back in college and I realize I haven't really given you any updates on my college and classes. This is mostly because I've been so busy. This week is especially tough, as midterms are here and I've been lacking sleep for the last couple weeks. … Continue reading Midterms and Sanity: College/Life Updates
